Chunghwa's ADSL price cut proposal rejected

23 Mar 2007

Taiwan’s telecoms regulator the NCC has announced that it has reviewed the compulsory price reductions in 2G and ADSL service charge rates proposed by Chunghwa Telecom and five other operators of mobile services. All price cuts for 2G services have been approved, but the agency rejected Chunghwa’s proposal for ADSL price reduction on the grounds that the majority of the company’s ADSL subscribers would not be covered by the cut. The NCC pointed out that the telco’s proposed price reductions were for its 8Mbps and 12Mbps services only, accounting for 27.54% of the total ADSL customer base. Chunghwa is required to resubmit a new price-cut proposal.
